We have lived in the area for 20 years and decided it was about time we visit the local museum. Small, but lots of information about Ennis. Worth the time!

The Ennis Railroad and Cultural Heritage Museum is well ordered and informative. The Docents are warm, friendly and anxious to answer any questions you may have. This is a piece of Ennis History not to miss.

Great little museum. Very clean & uncluttered. Be sure to watch the video in the back room. My son liked getting in the caboose outside. And if you're into it - the museum is a Pokemon Go stop and also on the geocache map.

This is a good place to see how the expansion of the railroad helped to grow parts of the southwest and particularly the town of Ennis. Interesting video and railroad facts if you are willing to go and find the town. One would probably not go here unless you were visiting family or the kind of person to go to... More

Not much to see really. The location is a bit hard to get to due to traffic school minimal parking available.

In a trip back home to visit family, I went with my dad to the Ennis Museum. Despite growing up here and visiting family through the years, I had never been to the museum. It take you on a trip back in time of how the town was developed as of result of the railroad being built in 1872 to... More

Ennis, TX offers several events through the year, but it's also a nice afternoon trip from the Dallas area at other times, too, for a relaxing time. This Museum is small, but filled with great exhibits. The caboose is fun to tour. Staff is friendly and helpful. The museum is located next to the Visitor's Center and across the railroad... More

This is an awesome museum. The history of Ennis is rich and interesting to say the least. Watching the mini video was helpful with understanding how Ennis and the railroad came together. Great history lesson.

Was worth the time we spent . Liked the caboose they had parked there to walk through. Your kids' will like that. Inside it was clean and well lit with good displays. My husband liked learning of the history of the area and the diorama of the RR depot, switch yard. Very old timey.
